Spawny!

Guess who has won a PS3!!!!! So what do I need to buy for it?
A second controller and an HDMI lead seems obvious.
It comes with a Bluray remote control, Need for Speed Underground and Little Big Planet. Christmas has come early!

I found a spare HDMI cable and managed to squeeze it in under the telly. Settings detects that our TV can support up to 1080i so that will do for starters.
It is connected to my wireless internet and currently is doing a firmware update.
Yay!

I've now watched half of "I Am Legend" on Bluray. The picture is outstanding. Shame my TV's audio can't match.

Gareth said...

Oh HOW GOOD IS THAT!!?!?! How did you win it?

Told you PS3 blu-ray was worth it beyond shadow of doubt....superb, got some game swaps to be doing sooner or later methinks... :)

Courtesy of an iGizmo competition about 3 months ago! They have a similar one running atm.
So what tech should I supplement it with?

Gareth said...

Well done mate, I didn't think anybody won competitions like that!

I would compliment it with the blu-ray remote (done), a second controller, HDMI, and a blue-tooth headset for gaming. Oh and guitar hero ;)

I don't have that much tech for it myself, not sure you need it. One thing I'm thinking of is a charging cradle for the controllers though. Both tidy and practical but not yet got.

Jealous of NFS Underground.

Jase said...

NFS Underground hasn't had a great write up, but I will let you know how I get on.
I have ordered a charging stand from Play already - was on back order, but now listed as "Packing".
2nd Controller arrived today, so is now charging via USB.
Can I use any Bluetooth headset? (like my old Jabra one?)

Jase said...

PS I can't quite stretch to GHWT atm - £150 for all the kit!!

Jase said...

Oh and I had to buy SingStar Mikes and the Abba (Solus) version of the game!!! As previously mentioned I am slipping!

Gareth said...

I previously said to one of my other mates that any guy who buys SingStar ABBA edition is secretly gay. That is all I will say on the matter.

Yeah I understand the GHWT issue, I'm waiting until January and buying it then on sale. Alternatively buy Solus and a guitar - still fully playable.

I believe you can use any new Bluetooth headset. Try it and find out if it works, most are compatible.

As for the Abba comment I refer the Gentleman to my previous post!

Gareth said...

Your previous post mentions nothing of your sexuality (beautiful family or not)... ;)

Gareth said...

How you getting on with the PS3 then? Addicted to Little Big Planet and the Stephen Fry commentary?

Jase said...

It all comes down to time to play.
With everyone being ill I have managed a grand total of about 2 hours playing NFS Undercover (and by the end I could steer reasonably well with the analogue stick).
Beyond that Serena and I faffed about on SS Abba for an hour and we have watched a couple of BluRay movies.
LBP is still in it's shrinkwrap!

Gareth said...

LBP would have been the one I opened first!!!!

Still, as long as you're enjoying the PS3...
